Mirroring the famous painting by British artist Edmund Leighton circa 1901, our Accolades III Tapestry depicts an accolade—a ceremony to confer knighthood. The sacred ritual is conducted with the knight-elect kneeling on a knighting stool at the feet of the monarch or Queen as depicted here. She is shown gently placing the sword on the elect’s shoulder. This medieval iconography is resplendently replicated on our tapestry in rich hues and royal colors. The tapestry is a wonderful way to weave a bit of history into your modern life and curated décor. Composed of 80% cotton, the tapestry also has a blend of viscose and polyester added for softness and luster. Ready to hang. Imported.
